Love this wig!
June 25, 2012
My hair has been thinning out dramatically over the years and the time has just about come to start wearing a wig. I have been using "hair powder" the last few years which has thankfully hidden my problem but now even the hair powder is not enough:( Looking for a suitable wig has been quite the adventure as there is no way I want to wear anything that LOOKS like a wig. I have looked at quite a few wigs and haven't liked any of them as they all screamed "WIG!!" until I saw a YouTube video advertising the top 20 wigs - and Voltage by Raquel Welch (color SS10) was one of them, it looked SO natural on the model that I decided to give it a try and LOVED it. I couldn't believe how natural it looked and how wonderful it felt...so light it didn't feel like I was wearing a wig either. The ONLY thing was that it was too short at the back - at the bottom, which is too much of a departure for me, so I decided to look for something a little longer, but in a very similar style, and came across the SALSA wig and ordered it in the same color (SS10) - HOPING against hope that I would like it. Well, today it arrived and I REALLY like it. It is sooo soft:) Just like the VOLTAGE, I can make it look really different in so many ways - it really is versatile. The only downside is that the hair is so sparse at the bottom - from halfway down the back, it really doesn't look nearly as full at the bottom as it does on the video. I had wanted to wear the bottom fluffed out but now cannot do so because of that so, have to push it down and keep it flat (just at the bottom, at the back). My favorite is wearing it with a tiny hair clip on each side.
Other than that it truly is a wonderful wig and I am very happy! I think I have finally found a wig I will be willing to wear to go out in public:) The picture above really doesn't do it justice. This wig makes me feel NORMAL again!! It truly feels so soft and wonderful, just like the other reviewers have mentioned.
When you first put it on, don't get a shock...because it sticks out a little to much...just spend a minute patting it down and styling it the way you like (which is SO easy and you will LOVE it:) ENJOY!
Pros:It really does look natural and it's really soft...it looks AND feels absolutely wonderful:)
Cons:The hair seems very sparse at the bottom:( That is is the ONLY thing I dislike about it.
